I heard about this device, it takes up power from the headphone jack on most airplanes and it slowly charges your ipod. You have to wait a minute to get power from this device. It gives power every minute. You understand?

iPods use LI-Ion, right? If you find one, make sure it is not second rate. Overcharging from a poorly designed device can make you DIAF.

Not that it matters. As of this morning, such a device may be restricted from boarding anyway in the short term future.

The iPod Achilles heel is lack of a user removable - replaceable battery. That's why I chose Creative's Zen Vision - just carry a spare battery. Besides - few flights last 10 hours or more. :)

And, yes - presently no electronic devices, cell phones, iPods, laptops, etc. can be carried on board aircraft departing London.
